McCarthy "Talked Himself Right Into Being a Marquee Witness" Against Trump: Ex-Fed Prosecutor

  McCarthy Glenn Kirschner made his argument in a video shared Saturday, telling House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to "buckle up."Making his argument in a video shared on Twitter Saturday, Kirschner noted that McCarthy called on Trump to bear responsibility for the Capitol attack right after the riot, and then made contradictory comments a few months later.

Mike McCarthy ' s unemployment has come to an end after he was hired by the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, he confirmed to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero . Jay Glazer of Fox Sports was first to report the agreement. Glazer added that an official announcement and press conference will occur "later this week." Per Todd Archer of ESPN, McCarthy signed a five-year contract with the team. The news comes after the team announced Sunday that it would be parting ways with Jason Garrett . ESPN's Adam Schefter also reported that McCarthy stayed at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ' house Saturday

Jerry Jones invested more than nine seasons into Jason Garrett , hoping the young coach’ s development would yield the franchise’ s next Tom Landry. It didn’t It speaks to the culture and personnel the Cowboys have in place. Jerry and Stephen Jones believe their team should be hosting a game this weekend or, at the very least, playing in the divisional round. Those were the expectations. The reason Garrett failed to receive an extension last offseason was so the club could address the issue if he fell short again.

Welp, that sure didn’t take long.

After a season of magnificence, the head coach Mike McCarthy and the Dallas Cowboys were supposed to be beyond this kind of thing — this flat playoff performance, rife with mistakes and poor decisions at the worst possible times. This Dallas team? They aren’t supposed to lose at home to the sixth-seeded San Francisco 49ers, a team that came into the game with a starting quarterback they’re continually working to jettison. Anything to contrary was supposed to be left in the past, remembered only as a relic of the Jason Garrett era.

No, these Cowboys were supposed to be ready. For all of it. A big run. And yet, here they are. Out of the playoffs again, with that familiar empty feeling that punctuated the Garrett era. Only this time, it’s arguably worse. Because this was a team that had an overwhelming amount of upside going for it. Now it will be remembered for a finale filled with penalties, a slow start and then a final snap that ultimately ran out the clock. Not to mention fans throwing objects at the officials as they left the field — an absurd display of emotion toward people who really weren’t responsible for Dallas tripping over itself in a 23-17 loss to the 49ers.

Michael John McCarthy (born November 10, 1963) is an American football coach who is the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL).

Mike McCarthy knows what Cowboys job entails. McCarthy will find out soon what Garrett experienced for most of a decade: It’ s a pressure cooker being the coach of the Cowboys . McCarthy isn’t totally unfamiliar with that situation. He coached the Green Bay Packers, and that market is intense. And McCarthy hedged his bets a bit but said that no, Dez didn’t catch it, under the rules then. “It was a technical rule at that time, since then Stephen [ Jones ] has gotten it changed on the competition committee,” McCarthy said. “I can’t tell you how many people from Dallas have told me

No, this one falls on a coaching staff that has struggled to instill game discipline, and a head coach and offensive coordinator who should have known better than to play with fire in the final seconds, running an ill-advised quarterback draw with Dak Prescott that was just asking for the worst-case scenario it produced.

That final play will attract the most attention and remain seared in the brains of Cowboys fans for a long time. But when this playoff loss is fully sifted, there will be no shortage of miscues that ultimately cost Dallas, leaving owner Jerry Jones in a familiar position afterward: speaking of his dismay and being asked if a head coaching change is necessary.

“It was quite a letdown — quite a letdown,” Jones told reporters. “We’ve got good players in there. Really good players. … Very disappointing that we couldn’t get it done. I would like to say that when I look at the year, I feel one way. But the year, a big part of it when you’ve got a team like this, is winning tonight. And we didn’t get it done tonight and that’s big-time disappointing.”

Everyone Is Saying Same Thing About The Cowboys Right Now

  Everyone Is Saying Same Thing About The Cowboys Right Now Watch as Florida State's Anthony Polite throws a perfect high arcing pass to Matthew Cleveland to catch in the air and slam into the basket for the ACC Must See Moment.

Former Cowboys coach Jason Garrett returns to AT&T Stadium this week, but this time as the Giants' offensive coordinator. Vincent Carchietta/USA TODAY Sports. "I'm disappointed," McCarthy said Sunday after the loss to Cleveland. Jones gives Garrett credit for part of the Cowboys ' draft success because of how well he worked with vice president of player personnel Will McClay and forced the coaches and scouts to come to a consensus on players. "Even though the guy is super smart and did a lot of good things, sometimes in order to make the next step, which we all knew was our goal every

Mike McCarthy ' s unemployment has come to an end after he was hired by the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, he confirmed to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero . Jay Glazer of Fox Sports was first to report the agreement Glazer added that an official announcement and press conference will occur "later this week." Per Todd Archer of ESPN, McCarthy signed a five-year contract with the team. The news comes after the team announced Sunday that it would be parting ways with Jason Garrett .

“When you get this combination of players together, you need to have success,” Jones continued. “Because we all know how it goes in the NFL. The whole thing is set up to take away from the best and add to the ones that need improvement. Personnel-wise, I think we have one of the best.”

Asked if there was any possibility of a coaching change, Jones declined to broach the subject.

“I don’t even want to discuss anything like that at this particular time,” he told reporters. “No discussion of anything. … I’m not going to discuss coaching, the preparation, any of those things. That’s not on the table. The game speaks for itself.”

Jones is right. The game certainly spoke — at times very loudly — about McCarthy’s performance. Like the embarrassing 14 penalties, a ghastly number Dallas has recorded twice this season, where it ultimately falls to the coaching staff to maintain in-game discipline at the most important moments of the season. McCarthy deserves criticism for that. He also deserves his share of signing off on the final play of the game.

McCarthy , like Garrett , specializes on the offensive side of the ball but is much more enamored with the passing game. He also is a very skilled game manager, a skill Garrett lacked while being the head coach of the Cowboys . That skill cost the Cowboys at least one game a season, but with McCarthy now at the helm those instances should stop. Jason Garrett , for all of his shortcomings, was able to build a talented roster for the Dallas Cowboys organization. Now, the Cowboys are hoping that Mike McCarthy can get them over the hump and back to that elusive Super Bowl and a sixth championship.

Jerry Jones hires mediocre coaches because he knows they won’t stand up to him and will do whatever he says. The last good coach Dallas had was Jimmy and Jerry ran him out of town because Jimmy wouldn’t just fold to Jerry ’ s demands. McCarthy was headed for a losing record from the start, even with the 1 s they weren't going to make it. Their 2 wins in the first 5 games were Falcons and Giants. If he sticks around a few more years, it is going to become pretty easy to place a lot more blame directly on McCarthy .

Fans will complain about the referee interrupting Prescott to spot the ball, but it’s absolutely on McCarthy to judge when a risk weighs too much. Everything about the draw play would have had to work perfectly in those final seconds in order for Dallas to get another shot at the end zone. That’s a gamble a McCarthy shouldn’t be taking in the postseason, especially given his well-chronicled history of clock management problems.

While none of this is perfectly anolagous to the Jason Garrett experience, the laundry list of reasons why a talented Cowboys team failed at a critical juncture absolutely is. One way or another, it seems there’s always something thrown into the gears that suddenly makes Dallas seize up. And in that respect, McCarthy has fallen short in the most familiar of ways, and it's made even worse by the complete unknown that now lies ahead.

If there’s a key point that Jones is already grappling with, it’s the likelihood that next season’s team may look noticeably different than this year’s addition. Which is why Jones stressed the point that when you’ve got it going good, you have to strike. And with this team, Dallas had arguably its best top-to-bottom program in a decade or more.

Dak Prescott Voices Support for Fans Who Threw Trash at Referees

  Dak Prescott Voices Support for Fans Who Threw Trash at Referees The quarterback was asked about fans throwing trash on the field at referees after Dallas’ loss to San Francisco, and he didn't hold back his feelings on the issue. View the original article to see embedded media.The Cowboys’ season came to an end on Sunday with a 23–17 loss to the 49ers at home, and the conclusion was chock-full of drama and controversy. Dallas had a chance to drive down the field and win the game in the final minute, but ran out of time before they could get the last play snapped in time.

This was the team’s best overall roster since at least 2014, and maybe longer. Individually, there was a bonafide franchise quarterback; loaded skill positions; two All-Pro players on a relatively loaded defense, including a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year. Collectively? The top scoring team in the NFL and the second-best defensive unit in the NFL via DVOA — which is one of the more accurate “real world” measures of a defense. Not to mention two of the hottest coordinators in the NFL, both in high demand on the head coaching interview circuit.

This is why Jones laments falling short despite the right combination for big results. Because both coordinators could be gone next season. Some valuable players could become salary casualties in the offseason. And the special chemistry that seemed to exist in 2021 on both sides of the ball could be staggered by a wave of change throughout the coaching and leadership cast.

Add all that up and it’s a lot of future anxiety accentuating immediate pain. Which is about as bad as the season could have ended for Dallas — feeling so close to putting something meaningful together, only to watch it come apart right when everything mattered most. It’s a familiar tale for this franchise, decades old and divided up by regime change amid the lingering tombstones of talented teams that never quite made it.

That’s not what this Dallas team was supposed to amount to in 2021. But one playoff game later, that’s exactly what it is.

Jerry Jones “won’t get into any conversations” he’s had about Mike McCarthy .
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after last Sunday’s loss to the 49ers that he was “not going to discuss coaching” and he’s still not in the mood to broach that topic. Jones was on 105.3 The Fan on Friday and was willing to say that he’s “very, very frustrated and upset” about the way the [more]Jones was on 105.3 The Fan on Friday and was willing to say that he’s “very, very frustrated and upset” about the way the season came to an end. He wasn’t willing to delve into what those feelings mean for the future of head coach Mike McCarthy.
